    Much of the stuff people have already mentioned.

    Also a medium box full of glow sticks and a tube tent. My inReach account also has my radio channel.

    Good friends, common sense ext. If it is 30-, socked right in, or bottomless pow maybe save the mission for a different day?
    Stick to some stuff you can handle and places you know? Doesnt hurt to be prepared, but who wants to sleep in a snow cave? Not me.


    I pack alot of stuff it seems, not much camping gear though.


    Sat phone and GPS is key if someone gets hurt.

    What do you carry that others may not have thought about?

    I have spent quite a fair bit of time in the bush, taken multiple survival courses I can comfortably say in am good for 3 days with a knife, lighter, 4 cliff bars and my muff pot and of course a compass. That said I have much more gear than most, actually very similar to Rowdy but thatís for comfort as much as necessity.

    And I have been forced to spend a couple nights left in the forest over the years the thing you canít prep for is the mental side of things, that takes practice. People should go try spend the night outside at -10 even prepared outside there nice warm house .... itís a long night, being stressed out, scared alone. Thatís what you need to pack with you.

Also like one guy does here also is pack a light weight hatchet zipped tied under my hood in the front , also came in handy a few times getting cats outta the trees lol...

    Good thread to bring back up so peeps can double check after the recent events this season already ...
    I also keep a small hatchet in my tunnel bag. My bear banger kit has bangers flares etc, cames in a kit. My first aid kit could use some attention as it pretty much consists of tape and rags. Haha

    One thing I don't see any mention of that our group all carry strapped to the tunnel is snowshoes. They come in handy when someone is stuck in deep powder and if you had to walk any distance could be a life saver.

    I am surprised a hatchet was only mentioned once. This is a survival tool essential invented by cave men!!
